Civilization is commonly believed to have started with the development of agriculture
. This development allowed roaming tribe

source, which allowed humans to spend time sitting around and thinking of stuff as opposed to hunting
all damn day.
Some regard civilization as a good thing, I for one am not all gung-ho about returning to the state of nature
, while others think that civilization is evil, see Rousseau
In regards to Civilization as a computer game, it's a very nice computer game, an excellent waste of time, perhaps second only to masturbation, especially if you're into the whole world domination thing. And for your viewing pleasure, I wish to present The Everything Civilopedia, an encyclopedia of all things Civilization related!
Throughout the game, the player devotes resources to scientific research to develop a roving band of settlers with primitive knowledge to a globe-spanning empire in the space age.
